A deep burgundy red is sure to impress. Deep black cherry, ripe plum, spice, mineral and pencil lead character with black cherry and cola, and a hint of sweet spices and herbs, and vanilla. Black raspberry, sweet, blue fruit, minerals and dense black cherries and ripe plums.
Raised in 60% new French oak, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is ready to drink and always an incredible bang-for-the-buck!
"For me, Two Old Dogs captures the journey of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon through the lens of a legacy brand rooted in friendship and a shared belief that wine can be both affordable and delicious" --Julien Fayard, Winemaker
